YG is a messy bitch that lives for drama, so at the same time YG Entertainment announced that 2NE1 would be disbanded, it was also announced that Taehyun would be leaving both WINNER and YGE.
“WINNER who had many things planned for them this year had put all their activities on hold unfortunately due to Taehyun’s mental health issues.
YG and the other members have put Taehyun’s mental health as the main priority and decided to wait for his recovery. However, due to the fact that the mental issue was one that has been present ever since his childhood, it is impossible to predict when he will recover and when he will be able to return to activities.
After much discussions with Taehyun, we have decided that it is not possible for him to continue activities as a part of WINNER and as of November 18th the exclusive contract between YG and Nam Tae Hyun has been terminated.
This is mainly due to the fact that Taehyun felt responsible for the fact that the team was put on halt because of him and that WINNER, who is only two years into their debut, can no longer wait to continue their activities.
Although Taehyun will no longer be with WINNER we hope that they will continue to support each other in their musical careers.
YG plans to continue promoting WINNER as a 4 member group with no addition of new members. Please show WINNER and Taehyun much support and love as they stand on the start line again.”
1) YGE are a bunch of fucking dicks for blaming everything on Taehyun as he exits. Way to be a fucking class act, you gaggle of fucking cunts.
“Our artist suffers from a mental illness severe enough he can’t continue on with his dream … so here’s a statement on his exit that puts all the burden of a group and a company on him.”
2) This is just … unfortunate for WINNER and Taehyun.
3) I hope that Taehyun manages to get back to singing eventually, though I’m sure the idol life wasn’t helping his situation. Also hope he wasn’t actually forced out due to mental illness or whatever else.
Seriously though, how do people stan YG? This shit is gross.
